Portuguese legend, Cristiano Ronaldo began his senior career with Sporting CP before deciding to join Manchester United in 2003, at the age of 18. A very successful player at club level, having won the FA Cup in that season. At the age of 23, he won his first Ballon d'Or. He would then go on to win the Champions League, the FIFA Club World Cup, and three straight Premier League championships. 

When Cristiano joined Real Madrid in 2009 for a transfer fee of €94 million (£80 million), it was the then-most expensive association football transfer ever. Cristiano went on to win 15 trophies at the club, including four Champions Leagues, two La Liga championships, two Copa del Rey crowns, and two Copa del Reys. He also became the club's all-time leading scorer.
